I must be insane. I signed up to run the Warrior Dash. But it has gotten me motivated to get back on the workout horse. I've been in "OM NOM NOM!!" phase for too long.
Each year I try to find an event that motivates me to keep exercising. Last year, I got into Roller Derby (and destroyed my knee). The year before that, the Bix - a 7 mile run that is uphill both ways. No shit. The year before that was my second Academy.
The Warrior Dash is unlike any event I've done before and I'm pretty excited for it. The event itself looks challenging and fun, plus you get a cool Viking helmut and beer drinking is encouraging.
There are Warrior Dash events all over the country. You should check it out.
